Spurs duo to miss European clash

Published 1 Comments

Gareth Bale and Emmanuel Adebayor will be missing as Tottenham start what Andre Villas-Boas believes will be a "decisive" Europa League double-header with Maribor.

The north Londoners come to Slovenia third in Group J following draws in their opening matches at home to Lazio and away to Panathinaikos. It is the first of a double-header with Maribor, starting with Thursday's clash at the Stadion Ljudski vrt before the return fixture at White Hart Lane in two weeks.

"I think these two games with Maribor is going to be the decisive point of the group phase," Tottenham boss Villas-Boas said.
